odd shoes

In Hallowell Maine this summer i found these odd shoes at a thrift shop - made of wooden soles and designated as Fluevog shoes. having the shoe fetish i do i was intrigued. it seems these were some sort of prototype - with pencil marks, nails and very little stitching. i was tempted to purchase for the sheer novelty of them, but restrained myself - even though they were surprisingly comfortable...

new place

Yesterday was the first day of orientation for my new job as professor at Marlboro College. it's exciting to meet all my fellow faculty, but even better will be meeting the students next week and getting to work!

Arrowmont School of Art and Craft still has space available in several super week-long and weekend workshops now through October. Check out their classes and consider a trip to the best school in the smokies!


I am intrigued by these double vases by Andrea Gill currently on exhibition at the Harvey Meadows Gallery in Aspen CO. I suspect the images don't do these pieces justice.
